Trout Fishing

There’s another Bank Holiday done and dusted. With plenty of anglers through the gates the weekend, fish were bound to be caught. The forecast wasn’t as bad as the weather man made out with no rain, lads and ladies took advantage of the fantastic fishing conditions.

Even with the Trout fishing slowing up now here at Seighford Lakes, some good bags of fish were had this weekend. Derek Howard and Dave Shaw gave us a visit, landing another 15 fish between them. All fish were caught out of the Railway Pool using small Dries and static skinny Buzzers.

John Whytte was top rod again this week. John fished Saturday and had 11 fish to the net, then returned again on Bank Holiday Monday to catch a further 14 fish. All fish were caught using Buzzers underneath a Site indicator.

With the weed really starting to fire up now it is essential to keep your flies high up in the water. Lures and weighted flies are really not needed. Small naturals and Dry flies are all you will need to catch fish here. I have a great selection of Natural flies in the shop, all of which are out of the Flash Attack Flies range.

Coarse Fishing

Lee Bailey (Stafford) did a night session on the Old Pool mid week, resulting in 18 fish in around 15 hours. Nothing huge, fish to around the 10lb/12lb mark all caught on his trustworthy Scopex Squid pop up boilies. **Night Fishing available at £16 per night for two rods, however you must book in before hand**

Barry Love (Chase Town) had a storming day on the Maze Pool one evening this week. Fishing from peg 37 Barry couldn’t go wrong with fish coming pretty much every put in. 11 meters out with 4mm hooker pellets was the key, fished over a bed of mirco pellets. Barry landed 12 Carp to 15lb, Roach to 1lb and 9 Bream up to 4lb. A combined weight of around 130lb. Top angling Barry!

Best fish this week was landed by Roy Walker (Stoke) who caught this cracking looking fish out of the Old Pool. Weighing in at 17lb 6oz, this faultless looking fish is his new personal best. Caught on a single piece of corn fished over pellet. (see picture).

Kevin Gear (Stafford) had this great bag of Carp out of the Horse Shoe Pool this week. The regular angler fished paste down the margins to tempt over 50 Carp out and a hand full of small skimmers. Using a small dibber float and very moist Paste, Kev was having a bite a chuck on the small 14 peg match pool.
